The traditional Gangaur procession started Wednesday at 04.30 pm from Ghantaghar meandering its way through Jagdish Chowk, Bhattiyani chohhta, concluding at the spectacular Gangaur Ghat where the women of different local communities kept the idols of Gauri for further customs.
Over the years, numbers of festivals and fairs have changed in nature; however, the Gangaur procession has retained its traditional charm. Since the days of Maharanas, there is a tradition of offering the royal Gangaur from the shore of the lake using the Royal Gangaur Boat. Tourists and the local crowd witnessed a beautiful traditional programme including dances like Chari, Bhawai, Terah taali, Ghoomar, Phool Holi and Mayur Nratya .
The procession also included the exhibition of Gangaur idols on the royal boat followed by fireworks at Hanuman ghat. Many others celebrated Gangaur at the Goverdhan Sagar . The celebrations were organized by the Rajashtan state department of tourism.
